Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum
115 E 1st St
Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi, 39530
The Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum (MSIM) was established in 1986 to preserve and interpret the maritime history and heritage of Biloxi and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
The Museum has brought life to local maritime history and heritage by replicating two 65-ft two-masted Biloxi Schooners. In August 2005, the Museum was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Nine years later, a newly constructed museum opened to the public.
The museum has exhibits on shrimping, oystering, recreational fishing, wetlands, managing marine resources, charter boats, marine blacksmithing, wooden boat building, net-making, catboats/Biloxi skiff, shrimp peeling machine and numerous historic photographs and objects.
